The British-Portuguese Chamber of Commerce (BPCC) in cooperation with the Dutch-Portuguese Chamber of Commerce will be holding a Business Breakfast at the Hilton Vilamoura.

If you've ever pondered the effectivness of your website and promoting your business online, then you'll be interested to hear speaker Helder Encarnação presentation: “To do or not to do, that's the only online question”:

A website is the reflection of a brand. If you want your brand to be unique then your website has to follow the same principle, and to neglect your online presence will surely bring you multiple losses.

There won’t be a second chance to make a good first impression – if your website looks like hundreds of others that opportunity is always wasted.

Understand why sentences like “Young and dynamic team [...]” simply do not work, why contact forms can be counterproductive, why too much information is actually no information and why sometimes a single webpage is all you need. These and many other questions will be discussed and debated.

A clear bet on a distinctive website has to be made in order to promote a successful communication with your clients whether they are individuals or other companies.

It’s important that an online project shows innovation, personality, professionalism, dedication and that it is detail oriented, focusing on usability and accessibility and characterized by constant technical innovation.

The session will allow you plenty of time to discuss these and other questions, and to share your experiences and learn from each other. There will also be time during and after the session to network and engage with the speaker.

Helder Encarnação holds a university degree in Tourism Marketing by ESGHT, UAlg, and a Bachelor degree in Tourism. He’s a developer and web consultant and trainer, marketer, musician and blogger. In 2013 founded, with Débora Lavareda, Crochet, a design and communications agency.
